IB BOS-MAD

Mon Feb 23, 2009 1:07 am

I've been trying to find some "concrete" info on here in regards to BOS-MAD on IB. My co-worker and I are planning on going on a zed fare mid march (The 12th to be exact) and wanted to get an idea of what to expect for loads or to see if we should not even bother taking them at all. If anyone has any info it would be greatly appreciated!

Also, any insight into the service (aside from all the rants on here about IB FAs) like the A343, ife, and upgrade possibilities.

Thanks,

Nick

Have heard their flights haven't been too full lately to say the least. The gate area doesn't look to full when they're boarding at least. I'd consider them. Be aware however, their flights are quite often late arriving and departing.

I took the flight in early-November. About 50 people on the flight in each direction. Maybe 10 in biz, 40 in economy.

Thanks for the quick responses guys. It sounds like the loads are low, kinda unfortunate for IB  Sad although I'm sure winter plays a part. Thanks again.

Hi all

At the moment 12march is not looking too good, although is a bit early to say really.

Ask nearer to the date and I´m sure I will be able to give you a better idea of the flight.
These are my principles but if you don't like them I have others
